Killer day with my regular customer Scott and his crew.

 

 The guys got in on the first big wave of Albies for the 2019 season.  The earliest I've ever seen them here.  

 

It was all day blitzes on Hogy Lures epoxy jigs.

Great news. A friend called me up yesterday after having a similar day. Slightly out of my territory but by the end of next week they should be all over. Obscene amounts of bait over my way.

Nice work.  My brother is flying in from CA for our annual Albie trip in CT, last few days of September.   With this early start we may be fishing for schoolies.

Might be a dumb question, but are albies/bonito line shy at all? Could I get away using 30lb braid to 20lb leader?

While there are times that they’ll hit anything, they have great eyesight and it’s best to have light tackle ready. I believe some guys will go to a 10 or 12 pound leader when the fish get fussy.

Recently I tried casting into a bonito blitz for two hours with my striper rod that has a 40lb flouro leader, a TAC clip and big swivel and got nothing.

 

For the next couple of months, I'm going to have an albie/bonito rigged reel with 15lb leaders in my car. :)
